FAQ

Why must the minimum curve radius on Taipei's heavy rail rapid transit lines be set at 200 meters? (Planning)

The trains on Taipei's heavy rail rapid transit lines are composed of six connected electric cars. Each car is 23.5 meters in length and forms a rigid straight line. If the curve radius is less than 200 meters, the cars will jut out into adjacent repair paths, hit the side of tunnels and threaten the safety of passengers. It is therefore necessary to set a minimum curve radius of 200 meters.
